One of The Best Apps to Use in Class to Annotate PDFs and Pictures

September1, 2015
Skitch is one of our favourite apps for annotating pictures and marking up PDFs . It is also one of the apps that have made it into our  last year’s ‘Top Educational Apps for A New iPad’. Skitch allows you to easily capture your screen and share it with others. You can also use it to annotate images and PDFs by adding shapes, arrows, stamps, text and many more.

As a teacher, you can use Skitch for a variety of purposes. You can, for instance, use it to mark up a PDF document and highlight important parts you want your students to focus on. You can also use it to create annotated visuals to include in your instructional tutorials. Skitch is also a great tool to use to give feedback and share ideas with students.

Skitch is free of charge. However, the PDF Markup feature requires an 'Evernote Premium account. Also, an  Evernote account is required to save to Evernote. All other capturing, mark up and saving and sharing functions are free and do not require an Evernote account.'

Skitch is available for Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS  device
